in their surveys across the country you're seeing chicago, dallas, kansas city, philadelphia, new york city, richmond, all reporting from businesses that business confidence is slowing down and it is dropping. this the third straight month in a row that we're seeing this. average orders index of course negative for the fourth straight month. we've seen that. employment index at a low too. but the issue is the umpire, the referees who get to call whether or not the u.s. economy is in a recession or not, it is called the national bureau of economic research. and jenna, they have historically been slow to call whether or not the u.s. is in a recession. you won't know until nine or ten months after the fact. for example, in 1970, back then the u.s. economy was in a recession. we only heard it was in recession from the nber eight to nine months later. in fact in the most latest downturn from 2007 to 2009, we basically, that was called, that recession was called in 2010. so you may hear after the fact that the u.s. economy was in a recession and it's not just two consecutive quarters of negative
trying to sit in. julie banderas is live in new york city were -- with more. what happened here? >> reporter: seems like american airlines is trying to do damage control. reports of loose seats over the course of three days, and according to "the new york post," there was a third incident last week. as a result, american airlines has grounded eight 757s to investigate why the seats are coming loose onboard. passengers got quite a scare over the weekend when an american flight was forced to divert to new york on saturday after a row of seats came unbolted mid flight. and then on monday it happened again, believe it or not, a flight headed from jfk to miami had to be turned back after loose seats were discovered. here's a transcript of one pilot reporting the problem to air traffic control. quote: >> reporter: well, luckily, all jets did land without incident, and i now the federal aviation administration and the airline are boast investigating, jenna. jenna: lucky they didn't hit turbulence or anything at the beginning. does the airline know why this is happening? >> reporter: we
their neighborhoods and their people, talking about cities and suburbs. this is very divisive speech and would have distanced themselves from it if had gotten attention four years ago. gregg: he also lavished enormous praise on the reverend jeremiah wright who himself made numerous racially incendiary speeches. any fallout from that or is that old news too? >> clearly obviously the campaign is going to suggest that it's old news and, you know, what he said there, and also the tone in which he speaks and the cadence and his accent and everything is clearly something very different from what ever hear out of the rose garden or anything like that. also words he has about reverend wright are exact opposite what says a year later when he denounces the church and leaves his church there. gregg: right. >> i think that it's that sort of disonance what we hear one place and what we hear in another, way he speaks in one place and speak in another, that could be very disconcert fog are a lot of people who got behind him because he was not going to sort of be this divisive figure. gregg: now, charlie, there's
city newsroom. >> the questions will come from participants. rules were agreed by reps from both campaigns. we're looking at live stage where the debate will take place. no closing statements at the end for example. no props. only the moderator picks the questions. neither sides knows the questions ahead of time. no camera shots of any audience reaction including the candidate's own family members. there are other rules that might be tougher to enforce especially while the debate is playing out. candidates can't address members of the audience. the moderator can not ask any follow-ups. it should be noted moderators of two prior town hall debates asked plenty of follow-ups. charles gibson asked six follow-up questions back in 2004. >> mr. president, i do want to follow up on this one because there were several questions from the audience along this line. >> rebuttal? >> go ahead. i was going to have you do the rebuttal, but go ahead. you're up. >> reporter: then tom brokaw asked 10 follow-ups four years later. >> quick discussion. is health care in america a privilege, a right, or
, psychologists, city attorneys and other accusers. they won. jenna: the victims certainly heard that sentiment, the judge had to hear that sentiment as well. how would that impact you if you heard that type of explanation and really no remorse? >> it won't impact me at all, and i don't think it impacted this judge. i mean essentially mr. sandusky is rearguing the case, and is suggesting while the witnesses should not have been believed. that is history. the jury has spoken. the judge has heard very competent, professional applications to set aside the verdict for the very reasons that sandusky just argued and the judge rejected those arguments. the judge is not in a position now to hear arguments that he should have been acquitted. he's only in a position to hear arguments about the harm that he's caused and the reasons he's going to be in jail. judges have a tendency of letting criminal defendants, especially ones they know are going to go to jail for a longtime say whatever they want just to get it out of their system. in this particular case what sandusky said is irrelevant, you can't argue
, one of the suburbs there in the northern part of the country, and cities in around damascus the capital of the country. these are new assaults launched by the government trying to keep up their momentum. we have amateur video provided by some rebel groups showing these assaults. 18 months into the civil war the rebels are really not able to hold any positions. they have been in these running battles with the syrian government as this war continues and the government is trying to keep the pressure up on the rebels. there has been one very big bright spot for the rebels this week. they have reported that they captured a syrian air defense base. that's significant because inside that air defense base are a number of anti-aircraft missiles. as you might remember, the syrian president has been using his air force to pound away at the rebels it impunity with the surface-to-air missiles, if they figure out how to use them that would give them a way to fight back against president assad's helicopters and his air force. we also got disturbing word from the rebels. they posted the vid

voter fraud. eric shawn live in the new york city newsroom with more on all this. >> reporter: hi, jenna. millions may get a big surprise when they show up to vote on november 6th. they will be told they're, inactive. by law you can be considered an inactive voter not voting in two consecutive federal elections or not returning postcards back to the election board to verify your address. the numbers are straggering. take a look. nearly 21 million inactive voters. california has the vote. texas nearly two million. florida, new york, illinois also top a million. even though they can still vote after confirming information or reregistering again, critics charge officials are intentionally purging voters with these lists. not so say election officials. louisiana secretary of state tom shedler says the accurate voter list assures elections by having accurate voting list. >> i put voting at the utmost paramount of our legal rights but you can see in business everyone does some type of file maintenance or business list maintenance and i don't see any difference in the voting registration. i thi
cities in new york state where the debate was held are on the verge of bankruptcy. pensions are high. expenses are high. we don't know how to run the old system anymore. it is not working. on the other hand we can't pull a rabbit out of the hat. here's the new system that america will look like in the 21st century. so i think our politics are in a bad place because we've outgrown our old way living and don't yet know where we're headed. jenna: why, don't we have a path forward, what walter said? >> we have a path, a warning sign at least on one path. there was a line by, from governor romney which i thought was effective, he should have stressed it more, the road to greece. we are now witnessing here in the united states, if you bother to look across the atlantic, exactly what happens when an entitlement state grows too large and you combine that, too large entitlement state with a low-growth state. that is precisely what is happening with president obama and i wish the governor had driven this home. we have low trend growth that can't possibly afford the promises that he is now made
